Thanks, this is how I can use up my frozen rhubarb instead of making a pie or cobbler. Sounds really refreshing.
Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it's a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they're terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Ah!!! Rhubarb! Actually a VEGETABLE is low in calories (26 calories per 1 cup of diced rhubarb) and carbs (6 grams), high in fibre and is also a good source of magnesium, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Calcium, Potassium and Manganese.
So, I made a smoothie with rhubarb today after my workout. There is a TON of variations you could make using rhubarb as a base ingredient to help fill you up (and avoid more calorie dense foods).
1/2 - 1 cup rhubarb (frozen, diced preferrably) 1/2 cup milk (almond milk, cow milk, hemp milk, etc) 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
Add Ins (add as many or as few as you like) handful of berries 1/2 banana whey protein Nut butter flax seed cacao fresh spinach fresh ginger coconut
Try to use frozen fruits. Makes a nice thick smoothie.
